Message from the Clinical Director

Welcome to the Beds and Herts Breast Screening Service Website. I hope that it will answer any questions you have about our service.

We are very proud of the service we offer all our clients throughout Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. We meet all Standards set by the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP), 99% of our ladies receive screening in the 36mth round length, 99% receive results within 2 weeks and 97 % of those requiring further assessment receive their appointment within three weeks of screening.

If you have received an appointment for mammograms, I would encourage you to attend. Our aim here is to improve survival rates from Breast Cancer by early diagnosis.

The appointment you have received may be inconvenient for you, please request an alternative through the “screening appointment” section on the website and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

I realise that Breast Screening can cause anxiety particularly when you are called back for further tests; I have a dedicated team of highly specialised staff here at your disposal to make your journey through the screening process as easy as possible.

Please contact the Breast unit directly if you require information or help that you cannot find on the website, the address and number can be found in the contacts section. I am always ready to hear how our service can be improved and if you have any suggestions, compliments or complaints please feel free to write to me directly as your comments are always welcome.

May I take this opportunity of thanking you for visiting our website and encourage you to come for screening when you are called.

Dr Janet Bietzk
